Who's the Man Lil Nas X Just Got Cuddly With on Instagram?

Lil Nas X is continuing to live the hot boy summer of our dreams

After making headlines last month for his unapologetically queer, kiss-tastic BET Awards performance (that had so many homophobes seeing red), the Grammy-winning rapper is continuing to live his best life — and it looks like that involves getting comfy and cozy with a new beau! 

In an Instagram Story pic posted over the weekend, a very shirtless X can be seen laying on top of an equally shirtless mystery man while the two are lounging around in bed. (Couple goals, tbh.)

With no face reveal, no caption, and absolutely no context, we're still left wondering exactly who this mysterious guy is that X seems so comfortable being with, but because the internet is filled with the best sleuths, many are surmising that it's none other than Yai Ariza, the dancer X famously kissed during his June BET Awards performance.

Considering how much unnecessary homophobia and hatred he gets just from being himself and the kind the of openly gay artist this generation needs in their lives, we're more than glad to see X have some happiness! He more than deserves it! 

Besides his new fling, it's going to be a busy summer for X! 

At the tail end of last month, he teased a very Marvel-inspired trailer for his highly-anticipated debut album Montero that had our nerdy, queer hearts swelling with excitement! 

"MONTERO THE DEBUT ALBUM COMING SOON!" X captioned the trailer (which features clips of some of his most memorable work over the past two years, like "Old Town Road," "Panini," and "Holiday")  letting his fans and followers know that his studio debut is on the horizon and coming soon (though no official release date has been announced just yet). 

It's Lil Nas X's world, and we're more than happy to be living in and witnessing it!
